“Just Amazing”

5 of 5 starsReviewed 28 September 2012

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at the amazing Villa Pico B&B in the beautiful mountain village of Sella.
It might be only a 40 minute drive north of Benidorm but it is a million miles away from the bright lights of the coastal resort.
We where there to do some hill walking and our hosts at the Villa Pico, Bennie and Harco had a wealth of knowledge about the amazing walks, for all levels, in the area .
The villa itself is at the heighest point of the village with great rooms all giving a great view. We where lucky to have The Tower Room which is the heighest room in the village giving the best views.
Breakfast was plentifull and very relaxed as there was no rush on you to be down by a certain time, very laid back, very Spanish. A wonderful B&B with wonderful hosts and wonderful views.
One reviewer said the best B&B in Spain.
They just might be right

Room Tip: Take The Tower Room if availible, its a little dearer but the best views and also a small kitchenett...


Hi Benny/Harco,

We had another wonderful holiday in Villa Pico. As we found two years ago the standard of accommodation and breakfasts were first class. We enjoyed staying this time in the Tower Room, nicely self-contained and the stove was just the thing for settling down to with a good book and a nice glass of wine.

Of course our stay was enhanced as usual by having Gilly in attendance to cater, clean and be a fount of information so that we were able to make the very most of our short time in and around the area.

And we met Pat for the first time. Pat is excellent. Her time-keepng, picking us up at the airport and taking us to the start of a couple of walks was marvellous. And then there is her experience of walking and climbing some of which she was able to share with us to enrich our walks and understanding of the richness of the beautiful Spanish surroundings.

We managed with Pat's help a first visit to Alicante mainly to see the art in the two galleries and must say we were enormously impressed by the range and quality of the work on display. You may be interested to know that below the Castille de Sant Barbera we happened upon a very quaint bar whose patron showed us the restaurant at the back. We were sorry we couldn't stay for an evening meal because it looked as if it would be a very pleasant experience. It is called "La Taberna Iberica" at C/.Toledo, 18 y Pedro Sebastia, 7 ALICANTE. Perhaps you might try it the next time you visit Alicante and let us know your impressions.



We had a wonderful time there :) !


Merry Christmas to both of you and we wish you a happy new year !

Benny en Harco,

For the ninth year in a row, I spent my holiday in Villa Pico. This year, I had no problems in convincing Claire to join me for 1 week in September.

I can assure you that both of us enjoyed your hospitality and the tranquility of the village. Although we might not be professional walkers, we couldn't resist to discover the area and picked several "well explained" walks out of a wide variety. A day at the pool in Villa Pico, a day at the beach in Villajoyosa, an evening in bar Paco at the Plaza Mayor ; our holiday was over before we knew it!

See you next year!

Claire & Marianne

P.S. Please take good care of Naranjito, our Spanish pet!

Hi, we really loved our stay att Villa Pico!
Siri is still talking about the mountains in Spain.
Hope to come back to Sella again.
